A gem of central European baroque architecture that helps justify Dresden's reputation as a major cultural centre, being beautifully restored after the massive damage inflicted at the end of World War Two.

The Zwinger is a large green space in the center of Dresden. It is a beautiful gathering spot with spectacular views of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

There was plenty to see in this Museum. Exhibitions were well laid out and the walk around the walls provided a good view of other parts of Dreseden

I didn't expect much of the place before I walked in. It is in the middle of renovation work and is half covered. But when I walked in, I just fell in love with the place.

Situated near the river Elbe, this is a place you have to visit. Very nice but simple garden. Beautiful fountains, old but nice palace around the garden. In the buildings, great exhibitions to see, porcelain, paintings, as well as old mathematic and physical instruments. The ambiance ot the old building is something you have to feel.

Yet another part of the amazing architecture in Dresden, and a beautiful tribute to all of the work that was spent rebuilding the city after WWII

The baroque architecture of the Zwinger is quite amazing. It is worth your time to walk around and admire it. Inside the buildings are three museums. Each of them is worth a visit. The museums are closed on Monday. The grounds are just lovely with immaculate grass and plantings. Don't miss the beautiful fountains with the carved statures and cherubs.... More

We attended a classical music concert in the Marmor Saal, the gardens of the estate and the fountains are mesmerising, the collection of Far Eastern porcelain, just treasures everywhere.

I don't like the cobbles to look at lovely but to walk on not so good. Dresden is a beautiful place to visit . So many museums and churches to visit and lovely gardens . It's a must to make a trip to.
